Recently a narrow one way street, called Tokyu Honten Dori, has gradually become popular among the fashion and gourmet conscious people in Tokyo. A small and well furnished bistro, Ahiru Store(アヒルストア) stands on a corner on the street. This is one of my most favorite french bistro in Tokyo.
The bistro is ran by a pair of a brother and sister. The older brother used to work for a wine importer dedicated for bio wines and the sister for a nice bakery. Their previous careers add charming characteristics onto their small bistro.This bistro serves a variety of fine organic bio wines. On the rack of the bistro, bottles work as the wine list, garnished with the tag indicating the characteristics of the wine. Actually he used to work at a famous bio-wine importer, “3amours”, french words meaning “three loves”.
The sister is a talented baker. She will recommend the best-fit bread for your dishes. After 10pm, you can just take away the fine breads.The MUST-EAT menu is the salad of avocado and octopus. A rich avocado and octopus are marinaded with lemon juice, garlic, virgin olive oil, soy source, and wasabi as hidden flavor. This high sense bistro opens at 15:00 only on the Saturday, while it opens only at 18:00 on weekdays.
